Keynote: Jason White - From Goal Lines to Lane Lines - Success Depends on Teamwork
Jason White attended Tuttle High School in Tuttle, Oklahoma.  At OU, White's accomplishments stand alone but are even more amazing considering he battled back from two season-ending knee injuries.  White set Oklahoma school records for touchdown passes (40) and consecutive completions (16) and ranks second in total passing yards in a season and fourth in total passing yards in a career.  White was a consensus All-American, consensus Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and two time Davey O'Brien Award winner, and was also the Sports Illustrated and Sporting News Player of the Year.  In 2003, White became the first OU quarterback and fourth Sooner to win the Heisman Trophy. He was also named the Associated Press, Sporting News and College Player of the Year.
Today, Jason is also a recognized Oklahoma celebrity keynote and motivational speaker.  He currently lives in Tuttle, Oklahoma with wife Tammy and children Tinley and Tandon. He owns and operates several businesses in Oklahoma.
